Food Blog Award, collaborations, invitations, followers, new plans - and of course some christmas cookies :-)
A few days ago I got a box, which came in with the postman - from Germany. I was quite surprisedwhen I unpacked it and saw the content: superfoods, nuts, raw cacao, raw confection - all kinds of expensive ingredients I've always wanted to have, was in this case. It was like Christmas ...! Therefore, I want to thank Keimling with this blog post: For a beautiful Award evening in Hamburg, my trip there and plenty of goodies. Since my blog was chosen among the top 15, I traveled to Hamburg in early November. I was visiting my dear cousin Isabella, looked at the city, and met many new, interesting people. You can see a few impressions of this evening below or reed it on the Keimling-Award-page.

Among others I met the author of the book "Go Raw - Be Alive" - Boris Lauser ( Go raw - be alive!: So schmeckt gesund ), who sent me a review copy of his new book. Besides, I got to know some very nice bloggers and talk with the staff of the company Keimling about raw food - in short, we had a great eventing. Of course I would have liked to be among the four - useless to pretend anything else ... ;-) But on the other hand: The winning blogs were all very good and deserved it to win. And I think my output of this award is very impressive too: I spent three nice days in Hamburg and returned inspired, with raw food gifts and new partner agreement back home. So I'm happy to get among the top 15 for an important award. Not bad for a five month old blog so far, isn't ist?
My 193-day résumé of blogging is: 1 Award nomination, many new followers (nearly 500 on Pinterest, 270 on Twitter, 100 on Instagram), which I got without much effort, interesting cooperation partners: The alga-vegan.com, Biohof Adamah and especially Keimling, who is sending me a long desired dehydrator for testing, with which I want to produce a series raw breads, which I am really looking forward to!
So as a christmas present - here are my first super Christmas Superfood raw food balls which are a real eye-catcher and a super tasty chocolate sensation! I hope you enjoy :-)!
